Are you trying to find the AP inside or outside the network? If I was trying to locate an AP, I wouldn't use Wireshark. Inside I would use an IP scanner such as Advance IP scanner to find the IP and Mac address. Outside I would use a WiFi monitor to find the AP. I've only used the WLAN for Wireshark as I'm connected to an AP. Never used it for trying to hack a network. I would use other utilities such as AirCrack-ng to get into a Wifi network.
