This is 300 Mbps and DD-WRT compatible. But 1 recent review is saying that now they are giving v9 which doesn't support DD-WRT this is the photo of that review:

Yup it is a solid Atheros based 2x2 Wireless N router.

And V9 does have current DD-WRT support. Maybe not at the time of that review, unless he has no idea on how to view latest beta's. As the Router Database sucks, always use the other downloads section and just browse for what you need.

So it worth for the price?
Is it solid for my use. I am using for online gaming I mean Multiplayer gaming and streaming and downloading videos and normal surfing. Speed by ISP is so good. Is it worth buy?

It will handle the workload, but always better to get a wireless router that is dual band. Meaning it can do both 2.4ghz and 5ghz, but that would also require you to have a receiver that can also handle 5ghz connections.

But for the most part the Wifi should be stable and not drop out.

I used to use a similar setup back in the day, and it worked fine when it came to streaming 1080p videos. Though some times when you have a lot of people using the connection, you can have problems with streaming. As you can only put so many people on a single wireless connection before the bandwidth is effected. Gaming doesn't eat a lot of bandwidth like streaming, but it does require a good solid connection. Which this should do, if you don't get a defective unit.

The Cost of getting both 5ghz equipment on each end may cost more than what you are willing to pay right now.

I used to use this as my primary router, and it has always been pretty solid. WIFI never would drop out, signal was strong, and never needed a reboot. Honestly was a vary solid unit.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008RV51EE

Though if you are looking for something cheaper, I would get something that is Certified Refurbished.

This is Qualcomm based, so it should be just as solid as the TP-LINK I listed above. Wireless Strength may not be as good. But both are 2x2.
http://www.amazon.com/Cisco-Simultaneous-Dual-Band-Wireless-N-Refurbished/dp/B005S0BYQ6/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1431211280&sr=1-2&keywords=Dual+Band

This is Marvell based, they have been known to make some solid chips on the higher end. As a 3x3 Wireless N box, it is more feature packed than anything else I listed. Though it seems these models run hot. So unless you are willing to crack one open and toss in some cheap ram heatsinks over the wireless chips/cpu, maybe get one of the ones I listed above. Shouldn't be hard I did it to mine which is the same way regarding heat, if you look at my sig.
