Data Backup/Restoration Very Slow in Symantec Backup Exec.

Or, Data Restoration Job Very Slow in Symantec Backup Exec Server. 
Or, Backup/Restoration Job Read/Write Speed Very Slow.

Descriptions: Its normal behavior of windows machines. Even if you have faster network, the read/write speed may be slower depending upon the Ethernet/LAN adapter level Speed and Duplex selections. If you have 1gbps connection, you should not have it set to 10mbps etc..
You should set this speed and duplex settings on both Backup Server and Backup Agent/Client.

Solution:
Correct the Speed & Duplex settings for LAN adapters on both servers (Backup Exec Server and Remote Agent Server).

Steps: To correct the settings:

Go to Run > Type ncpa.cpl > hit Enter > Right Click on LAN Adapter > Go to Properties > Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) as below given reference screen shot:
















Now Click on Configure button > Then Click on Yes if prompted (Screen shot given below for reference):














Go to Advance tab > Under Property section, select Speed & Duplex > Under Value section, select 1.0 Gbps Full Duplex > Now Click OK

























Once you have configured “Speed & Duplex” on both the servers (Backup Server and Remote Agent Server), your data backup and restoration job will be speedup. 

More than 5GBof data rate (Read/Write) is archive in my case.

For example, you can see the below screen shot:
