comment Router disconnecting ssh sessions after approx. 5 minutes
It is easiest enough to test if it is the idle timer -- simply sit there for 5 minutes hitting the space bar every couple of seconds. If you still get disconnected its no the idle timer.

comment One Router and Two Switches
Unfortunately, this may not be as simple as you would like. You might be able to connect the VPN to one of the switches and then another router or firewall to both switches to get traffic to the VPN device though.

comment Basic Cisco Switch Recommendation For HSRP WAN Redundancy
I think you are correct about the 2960s RPS, but I would triple check since there are several sub-versions (TC, TT, PC) within that family of switches. cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/switches/ps5718/ps6406/…
