To determine inbound traffic you should disable promiscuous mode as that allows traffic that wouldn't normally be accepted by the interface to be processed. This is done from the Capture Options dialog.

To determine inbound traffic, set a display filter to only show traffic with a destination of your interface(s) MAC addresses(es), e.g.

eth.dst == 00:11:22:33:44:55

substituting the appropriate value for your NIC MAC.
