Adding MTU registry entry to several desktop PC's

I need to add the MTU registry entry to 300+ desktop PC's and am looking to do this without visiting each workstation.  The MTU reg entry is located at:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\[Interface ID]\

I know how to add the value to individual machines, my question is, can I add the MTU value via a logon script?  The first obstacle is that the Interface ID's will not be the same on each PC.  Any ideas?

Do it through WMI Scripting. Here is an example which does it on the machine where it is run;

On Error Resume Next

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set objNetworkSettings = objWMIService.Get("Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration")

Just save it in a file with .vbs extension and double click will set the MTU on that machine to 68.

What you can do it is to include this as a logon script and run once for all the machines.

Will this script set the MTU value only if MTU is already a valid key?  MTU is not currently a key listed on these systems.  Also, if a machine has more than one network adapter, will this script add the MTU key for all adapters (interface id's)?

Yes to both. It should. Why don't you try it on a machine?
