Static internet setting in ubuntu

In ubuntu,even if you enter IPs in Network manager correctly,it is not able to connect internet.At that time you need to enter details manually in network files.

1) type sudo gedit /etc/resolv.conf

See if you DNS server is there,If it is not  there than type:
nameserver <YOUR DNS IP>

save & close file.

2)Now type:
sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces

in this file first type:
iface eth0 inet static

after that type:

address <your ip>
netmask <subnet mask>
gateway <gateway ip>

save & close file.

3)Restart network service by following command:

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

and Now it should be working!
