I was wondering if anyone else had this problem. I use static ips in my house, but still have a dhcp server. I just upgraded to 8.04 on my laptop from 7.10. So far its alot better that 7.10 because i dont have to mess with things, it just works. Anyway, i wanted to make 2 profiles, one for my house and one for everywhere else. I want my home profile to have the wired network a static ip and nothing with wireless. Than the other i want to have both in roaming mode. So i did that, but for some reason my home profile when its applied, it doesnt actually give it an ip address. I figured out if i run
it somehow gets the ip address and works beautify. As soon as i switch around profiles again, roaming works fine, but switching back to the home profile causes it to do the same thing as before and i have to run the command again.
sudo ifdown eth0; sudo ifup eth0
Anyone know what im talking about?
Also i think the problem might be in the interfaces file. I think network manager is adding things in the wrong order.
If im not mistaken, auto eth0 should be right over iface eth0. Im at a loss because i need something simple to switch between profiles because i constantly move around with my laptop and dont feel like editing the interfaces file every time.

# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet static
