    Hi,

    in the file "docsis_symtable.h" MaxCPE is defined with ranges from 0 to 16:

    { 26,  "MaxCPE",                        18,  0,   (get_uchar),     (decode_uchar),       0,        16         },

    I think that at least the maximum number should be greater as we are using cable modems that can handle 32 CPE's. And Cisco's docsis configurator defines MaxCPE as follows:

    Specifies the maximum number of CPE devices that can use the cable modem to connect to the network. The valid range for maxcpe-num is 1 to 254, with a default of 1.
