It's not easy. On Windows you can use an old Microsoft program called Microsoft network monitor. cellstream article You can save the file and open in wireshark. You need a wifi adapter that supports monitor mode - some do not, or not under Windows anyway. If your wifi traffic is encrypted I recommend you turn off encryption - make it an open network, while you capture messages. Otherwise, for Linux see this -- and this

You could also try commview for wifi


it's inexpensive but doesn't support decryption and only 802.11abgn.
