As Sourav pointed out setting your nameservers via the NetworkSettings
tab will be overwritten by NM since the applications are not aware of
each other.   If you want to hardcode a DNS server you should do it in

I /think/ what you want to add is:

If you edit /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf you will see some examples in the
config file that you can just uncomment and modify.
