Arris TG862 & Wireless Access Points

So I have the Arris TG862 gateway and two Netgear wireless routers configured as wireless access points (DHCP turned off, etc). The Netgear routers are connected to the Arris gateway via CAT5 and everything is working just fine. My issue is that when devices are connected to either of these two WAPs (wireless or wired) do not show up on the 'CONNECTED DEVICES' list in the Arris gateway. Normally this is not an issue but I would like to use parental controls in the gateway to block a specific IP/MAC from certain websites. With the way that the parental controls work in the gateway, you have to manually trust connected IPs that can have full access and since I cannot see the other devices those devices are then blocked. Any ideas?
