The company I work for is using an application which requires the MTU max value to be 1260 on 150 desktops running Windows XP OS.  I have ran into a brick wall trying to find a way of manipulating this registry value. I have been unsuccessful in finding anything unique to the path of the adapter interface. All of the Adapter IDs are different.
I trying to find out if there is a wildcard that I can use to get pass this key or possibly a script or automated approach to changing the value of the MTU size
*Below is the registry path.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\<AdapterID>\MTU
