Changing to Static IP in Ubuntu 12.04, using a GUI tool

I have changed my network address of Ubuntu (12.04) to a static IP, using a GUI netwok tool.

Using Classic Desktop's Menubar,
1. System Tools > Administration > Network Tools.
2. Select "Ethernet Interface (eth0)" and click "Settings" button.
3. Select "Wired Connection 1" from the list and click "Edit" button.
4. Go to the "IPv4 Settings" tab.
5. Change the Method from Automatic (DHCP) to Manual
6. Click "Add" button and enter an appropriate IP address.
7. Enter DNS server. (I obtained it from my Verizon Fios router settings)
