Yea I had that problem before, and it was because of the modem/router they supply. If you know how, just change it so your modem only acts as a bridge instead of the modem/router setup they got.

Edit: Just to make this clear, the modem/router also caused the lag, not just port blocking

even when i'm not using a router, just directly connected to the modem starcraft still lag alot

That's the point, your modem is acting as a router

Try calling up Embarq and ask if they have just a single stand-alone modem. Back when I worked for an ISP, we didn't give out mdm/rtr combos, but some people would install their own one, and it would cause nothing but a sh*t-ton of problems.
