In Window is simple: 1) I create a a new connection (RDS) as PPPoE and configure with username and password. 2) I have a wireless access point tp-link I plug my cable and my laptop is connected on wireless 3)To make the connection available I simple click on connection RDS (I am connected to wireless) and everything is OK.

How to make this connection work on Ubuntu? I make a new connection with my username and password and named it RDS and I am connected to my wireless access point but how to make my internet to work?

If I read you correctly what you require is a RDS client package from the package manager
