when I go preferences > network connection
and change it from DHCP to manual and add a connection I can enter the 
IP address ( and the subnet mask ( and 
gateway (, but when I click apply it changes the gateway 
back to 

I decided to do it manually and opened /etc/network/interfaces, and 
found it only had two lines in it, with none of the addressing 
information as it does on the server version.

1) anyone have an idea as to why it will not accept and keep the gateway 
address, and
2) where is the data kept ?
