We consider a nonlinear Dirichlet problem driven by the $p$--Laplacian differential operator, with a nonlinearity concave near the origin and a nonlinear perturbation of it. We look for multiple positive solutions. We consider two distinct cases. One when the perturbation is $p$--linear and resonant with respect to $\lambda_1>0$ (the principal eigenvalue of $(-\Delta_p,W^{1,p}_0(Z))$) at infinity and the other when the perturbation is $p$--superlinear at infinity. In both cases we obtain two positive smooth solutions. The approach is variational, coupled with the method of upper--lower solutions and with suitable truncation techniques.
