As of Ubuntu 12.04, we cannot edit /etc/resolv.confÂ directly anymore, so we need to add nameservers directly into network configuration.
This is a must save for later.
Setting a static IP in Ubuntu 12.04:
1 - EditÂ etc/network/interfaces
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.13 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1 #change this according to your network settings dns-nameservers 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 #google dns
2 - Restart network
That's it, you should now have a static IP.
