I am unable to download torrents using Transmission. How do I connect using transmission? I can download from sites but not BitTorrents.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
I have a suggestion- you can use Deluge or Ktorrent. They are much better. I have removed transmission completely from my system and now using Deluge and Ktorrent to download torrents.
Now I have better controls over torrent speed. Tranmission
But if you want to stick to Transmission then try to reset its settings to its default value. Go to its settings, there you can probably find "reset" button.
And check downloading from different sites. May be the torrent you are trying to download does not have any seeders.
