DNS keeps being dropped

Hi All,
I set my DNS in network connections, test it, it works OK, then 5 minuets later it's reverted back to no DNS set. I'm using Lubuntu 15.04 , I go to network->edit->IPv4->then method "automatic (DHCP) adresses only->DNS server set number here. SAVE

It works for 3/4 mins then stops using DNS. The DNS is still show in settings. Can anyone advise how I can get it to stop "turning off" the DNS I set?

Think I've found the answer, of course straight away after I post on here! Open etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and comment out line dns=dnsmasq
