WLAN setup only seeing local & broadcast traffic in promiscuous mode

I'm running Wireshark on my wpa2 wifi network on windows. I'm using an alfa that IS capable of promiscuous and monitor mode. When capturing, I only see local traffic (to and from my PC) and broadcast traffic (Destination ip:, as well as arp requests, DHCP, multicast packets). I am in promiscuous mode, but still nothing. Why isn't this working? I have tried setting up decryption, but that didn't work either. I've tried multiple network adapter, all 802.11 channels, and even monitor mode (which automatically unchecks itself). Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
