Here is a summary of the current problem I have with my Cambodia office.  In SF, we have a Cisco 5510.  In Cambodia (KH), there is a Cisco 2821.

1) All pings from SF to KH result in alternating packet loss (VPN Tunnel);
2) All pings from KH to Internet are fine (No Tunnel);
3) All pings from KH to SF result in alternating packet loss (VPN Tunnel);
4) Pings from SF to inside interface and outside interface are fine (no loss, VPN Tunnel).
5) Increasing ping size to 1500 (ping x.x.x.x -l 1500) results in no packet loss (VPN Tunnel).
6) I have removed all network gear on the KH side and had a user hook a laptop direct to the 2821.  Same issues.
7) this tunnel had been working for 2+ years with no issues.  No changes on the 5510 or ISP in SF.  I am not sure about the ISP in KH - I cannot get an answer.

You might try putting this on the outside Interface on both routers:

ip tcp adjust-mss 1452

Awesome.  I only had to add it to the KH router.  All is good now.
