Fizz modem/router access control list limited to 16 devices ???

Is the Fizz modem/router wireless access control list limited to 16 devices only ?
I have added 23 devices and saved the changes but when I came back there is only 16 in the list...
Have similar problem with Security Device Filter - if there are more than 20 devices the filter is not working at all...
Should I use my NetGear router and use the Fizz device just as a modem ?

In bridge mode, the two (2) Wi-Fi radios built into your Fizz Wi-Fi modem will be deactivated, thus disabling its Wi-Fi capabilities.
  • Open an Internet browser and enter 192.168.0.1 in the address bar.
  • Identify yourself using the following login information:
    • Username: cusadmin
    • Password: **enter your Wi-Fi password**
  • Select General
  • Select Gateway
  • Disable the option ''Residential Gateway function''
  • Click Ok
 
Install your personal Wi-Fi router

 

Connect your personal router as indicated in its user guide. 

Plug the network cable (RJ45) into one of the four (4) numbered ports of your Fizz Wi-Fi modem.

If there's any issue with the connection, restart both devices (the Fizz Wi-Fi modem and your personal router).

If you want to re-enable the Wi-Fi capability of your Fizz Wi-Fi modem, you'll need to reset it to its factory settings by holding down the reset button on the back of the device for ten (10) seconds.

Yes you should use your NetGear as router due to that limitation of Fizz router/modem

Fizz router is probably okay for someone using just a couple of devices, but it is a modem/router combo so don't expect the same functionality as a dedicated router. It looks like you have many devices so I would reccomend using your own since you already have one. Follow the simple instructions here:
