Well, you're using network-manager, which doesn't coexist well with anything
in /etc/network/interfaces for a wireless card, so that would be my first

You could try removing everything about ra0 from the interfaces file ("auto
ra0" looks especially wrong - I've never auto'ed the wireless interface),
or removing network-manager.
