Some packets not coming through

Hi. As you can tell from the title, my problem is that when sniffing on a network, some packets are not being detected by wireshark. For example, out of the 4 authentication packets for WEP, most of the times it detects about 2-3. I'm using an AWUS036NH USB card with a Kali VBox, in monitor mode and in the same channel as the AP. The physical space is crowded with WLANs on the same channel, but my very limited experience with the subject doesn't let me consider if that's enough of a problem (the AP must be getting the packets, or else data transmission wouldn't happen). Does anyone know something that may be causing this? Thanks
