Sometimes there is an issue with fragmentation when using IPSec VPNs. This is caused by the additional header information inserted by IPSec. It sounds as if this might be the issue with SQL and remote desktop (which frequently use maximum size packets) but not be an issue with ping (which usually does not use maximum size packdts). One way to deal with this issue is to use the ip tcp adjust-mss command. I would suggest that you configure under the LAN interface of the router ip tcp adjust-mss 1350. Give it a try and let us know if it helps.
