Do you always get told to use the same gateway by the ISP?  On some,
they do change.

What are you resetting several times?  Perhaps you have a wonky modem?

Although you've said that you have a static IP, that doesn't mean that
you have to hard-configure your system with static details.  You can use
DHCP to auto-configure your system with the details they provide, each
time, even if they're (nearly) always the same.

I'm not sure why you need network manager running.  I was under the
impression that you'd only need that if you kept changing networks, and
you'd like it to manage the changes for you (e.g. you take your PC
between work, home, and other places).
