I need to use the router from my Internet provider because it has a built in fiber ONU. However, the DHCP server only supports 16 reservations and I need way more. Any suggestions?

You can only have one DHCP server in a broadcast domain. So unless you can disable the DHCP server on the ISP router you will have to put a second router behind it with it's own subnet and DHCP server.

OP, you could always use something besides the router as a DHCP server as long as you can turn off DHCP on the ISP's router. Ex. Pihole
