Need more information - has the beer reached final gravity & cleared? In any case, you'll want to go to a bottling bucket. Siphoning from primary for bottling usually stirs up the yeast and makes dosing priming sugar more difficult.

Be patient. It will pay off. Give it a total of three weeks minimum. Then check gravity to make sure it's done.

What's the rush? If it's because you want to brew another batch, go buy another bucket. If you're just impatient, learn to be patient. It's required in this profession.
