Hi, I have an external usb network adapter (alfa AWUS036NHA). I run Kali Linux on vmware runned by mac os x. I set alfa in monitor mode on the right channel of network I would sniff. I put the right wpa-psk in the IEEE 802.11 configuration section.I sniff the EAPOL packets of devices that try to auth on the network and I see the tcp traffic and some http packets. So, I would to sniff the http post request on my website but i DON'T SEE the request on wireshark. I don't know how but once I see it. What I wrong ?

Maybe packet loss. There is no guarantee that your capture interface sees exactly what the other wireless interfaces observe. Just because they saw it, does not mean you did; just because you see it, does not mean they will.

That adapter looks like a bgn 1x1 ( Make sure the devices communicating are within this capability envelope. If not, you might not see all the traffic between the devices.
