creating multiple connections


i use dsl connection to cnnct to the internet through my ubuntu pc.
In ubuntu,at first i had to run pppoeconf command to enter my user name and password(this edits the dsl-provider file)..now each time i connect to the net i use the pon dsl-provider command..
what i want to know is stated below -

# i have three username-passwrds that cnnct to the internet..
only the 1st one has unlimited broadband priviledge but it is much slower than the others

each time if i wish to cnnct by different usernames, i have to run the pppoeconf command and scan my devices and provide my 2nd or 3rd username and paswrd ..
when i will shift to my 1st one...i have to repeat this tedious procedure again....
i guess ..u all will agree with me that this is a frustrutaing thing to do all the time...
in windows xp i can create many simultaneous connections (eg. MyConnection1,MyConnection2,MyConnection3 etc)...and cnnct through wichever i wish with just 2 piece of clicks


---- so,how can i keep simultaneous 2,3 connection files and cnnct through which ever i like without the pppoeconf shit all the time??

How about just copying the config file to a different name??? DSL-Provider-1, DLS-Provider-2, etc., kind of like Windows does when you right-click then edit the connection properties??? Then you can just type in pon <config name> and you're done.

Also, there's no reason to talk like this about a 'problem' you're having, and spelling correctly wouldn't hurt either.
