superprash2003's suggested solution of manually inserting the IP address instead of using the graphical solution of Places->Network is because the graphical solution is quite broken. Many users, maybe most - myself included, have this problem. It is a real shame that Ubuntu cannot do something that is so very important for it to be seriously used in most computer networks, which are usually, at best, mixed environments with Windows systems present.
