It may not be what you are looking for but I just open a terminal and
<sudo pppconfig>
<enter password>
and after configuring my connection, use pon and poff to turn the
connection on and off, or use the GKrellM net utility which is just a
button to push for connecting/closing connection.

use optimized, small code and usually perform well, none.
