Title pretty much explains it. I have a "Home Wired" connection profile set up with a manually-set IP address, gateway, netmask, DNS servers and search domain for eth0.

However, it always comes up with a DHCP-obtained IP address, whether I check the "auto-connect" box or not, and if I try to reconnect after the machine's already up, nothing happens.

Someone has filed a bug report on this, and supposedly it was fixed - but, it wasn't....?

Anyone got this working (without manually modifying /etc/network/interfaces - this is a laptop)?

TIA
Bob

Actually I noticed the same thing yesterday, I was going to convert all my boxes from DHCP to static ip-addresses, but it didn't work.
