16 device limit?

16 device limit?

I have an Xfinity XB3 WiFi modem (Arris TG1682G).  On the browser interface control panel it says:

 

MAC filtering Setting

 

   Wi-Fi Control List(up to 16 items)

 

Does this mean that I am limited to a total of 16 devices connected to my WiFi network?  If so, is there any setting to change this?  Thanks, in advance.

It just means that a max of 16 devices can use that feature. Your total device limit is determined by the IP limit of your subnet mask.
