We have been having some connections drop on our network across offices(RDC connection), and I am going to try to adjust the MTU on our Netgear FVS318v3 VPN Firewalls.

Will the MTU need to be changed on the computers behind the router as well or can they be left alone?

What would you suggest the MTU size to be set to?  Some offices have DSL some have Cable.

I had a lot of troubles before changing the MTU on client site when using Cisco VPN Client with Routing (i.e. the VPN Client was an a router). RDP would hang forever, SMB file transfer is stuttering. The MTU on the VPN Client pc does not matter.

With one other VPN site (Site 2 Site VPN) I had issues with MTU which could be resolved on my VPN device.

If you want to be sure about it, you will have to change MTU on each client.
