### No packets in Wireshark

Hello,

I am new to using Wireshark and had some questions. As some background, I have purchased a USB wireless adapter, which supports Monitor mode (Alfa AWUS036NH). I am using Windows 10. I have installed the drivers, disabled the computers onboard wifi and ethernet adapters, and plugged in the USB adapter. When I run Wireshark, not in Monitor Mode, I can see traffic. But, when I enable Monitor Mode, in Wireshark Capture Options, there is no traffic. I have no filters on Wireshark. I am connected to the 2G wifi network (which is my network, so I know the password). Am I missing something? As a side note, I have also tried setting this up on Kali (using Virtual Box) but it was real flaky. It would take 10 or minutes for the wifi to even connect, then when I ran Wireshark, in Monitor Mode, the app would freeze. Any suggestions to get this working would be great!

Thanks
