Now I cant even find my WiFi card.... Tried searching for hardware changes etc but got nothing. This has happend before but then all i had to do was re-install the driver and reboot, but that doesnt seem to work anymore

Not sure what is up with the WiFi driver but something isn't right there. If the wireless is still cutting after certain amount of time then try starting up in safe mode with Networking, this will help determine if the problem is caused from an installed program that is starting up with the system.

Run the system in safe mode with networking awhile and let me know if the wireless is still cutting out or not.

I'm not seeing any problems here but you might want to change the router to single channel mode, you are using both channel 11 and 7 now which is called channel bonding, although sometimes it works best to use single channel mode, it should look like 20Mhz-40Mhz setting, you might try changing to 20Mhz which is single channel mode.

Since the default gateway appears to be disappearing it may help to define the gateway at the IPv4 properties window, hit the Advanced butting and type in the gateway manually there.

I manually set the gateway adress, but im not quite sure how to disable dual channels.

I have a setting which is
Mode: AP
Band: 2,4GHz (B+G+N)
Essid: LongstreetAllstars
Channel number: 11

where i can change all of these. Should I change "Band" To something else?

For the Band, try to go with the 802.11n Only setting, the 20Mhz setting should be the single channel mode.
