Is there a way to disable ARQ without disabling error control all together? I got a USR 5686d and this ARQ gives
me a lot of lag while gaming but without the error control my connection speed seems to drop any suggestions fellas ??

ARQ is error control.
When there's an error, the modem requests retransmission.
(ARQ stands for "automatic repeat request").
Higher modem speeds make errors (and re-transmissions which are bad for gamers) more likely.
You should LOWER your speed with error control still enabled.
