Dual Networks Profiles Ubuntu 18.04

The setup

I have 2 network adapters, a 10G and a 1G network. In order to connect to both networks, you must have two profiles.

Two profiles: 10G and 1G profile, across 2 adapters.

If you have a single profile, then changing settings for one network adapter will also affect the other. In Ubuntu's Network UI, this is non-obvious.

Once setup correctly, you can verify by being able to ping both networks.
