I have NM with static IP working just fine.  Using the GUI may or may
not be causing the problems (as in, not writting to correct files or not
getting it correct or whatever), but you can try to get around it or
using a little simpler way to help?  Try running
"system-config-network-tui" and that should write the correct info. Then
edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 (or whatever your using)
and make sure your IP, netmask, gateway, etc stuff is correct.  You also
need your DNS info in there as well so NM can pick it up.  If using NM,
it overwrites resolv.conf when it starts/stops, so no use editing
resolv.conf manually.

Here is a sample of mine with minimal stuff that works if it helps..

[mike scrappy ~]$ more /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 
# nVidia Corporation MCP61 Ethernet
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
BROADCAST=192.168.1.255

NETMASK=255.255.255.0
