I think you should have actually mentioned static IPs...

It's not so much that they don't get along, as NM assumes you don't want it

What you really need to do is set up your router as Paul has - to serve up
specific IPs to specific MAC addresses, then you get the result of static
IPs with the benefit of DHCP and Network Manager.  Much less fuss.

Just don't mess with the /etc/hosts files as Paul did - that's adding an
unnecessary level of complexity.
