I have had good experience with the ASUS RT-N16

However, if you are trying to connect 30 something devices wirelessly you might want to configure the Belkin as an additional AP (Access Point) with a separate SSID and divide the traffic between the two.

each, the router and the AP, will support about 15 users

NO since the AP is connected to the main router LAN port to LAN port via the network cable, the main router will provide the IPs. The AP will act like a wireless switch.
Just make sure that the LAN IP of the AP is of the same IP scheme then the main router

you asked for a recommendation for a new router which I recommended the ASUS RT-N16

if that one by itself does not work I recommended to use the Belkin and configure it as an AP to take half of the load
