Description of problem:
For special reasons, I am using two ISP's via DSL. For each of them I created an individual network device (ppp0, ppp1) which is configured with the resp. login data + password, and uses the same network card (eth0). After saving and rebooting, if I try to activate ppp0 or ppp1, I get an error message. If I delete one of the two devices (regardless which one), the leftover device connects properly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create ppp0 device for DSL ISP one
2. Create ppp1 device for DSL ISP two
3. Make sure both devices are mapped to the same network hardware (eth0)
4. Save and reboot
5. Activate ppp0 or ppp1
Actual Results: Error message, saying that the network device cannot be activated.
Expected Results: Connection to the selected ISP
