Fixed IP on RaspberryPi

I prefer fixed IP to dynamic IP address. So I just changed from dhcp to static in the /etc/network/interface file.
/etc/network/interface:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback  
auto eth0iface eth0 inet static 
address 192.168.1.11 
netmask 255.255.255.0 
network 192.168.1.0 
broadcast 192.168.1.255 
gateway 192.168.1.1
And don't forget your DNS setting. Once you no longer get network configuration from DHCP server, you need to configure your DNS manually.

/etc/resolv.conf:
nameserver 192.168.1.1

/etc/network/interface and ifconfig output
