Data packets not captured

I am using an Dell Latitude 3480 laptop which comes with the Qualcomm Atheros QCA6174 Wifi card with Ubuntu OS (16.04 Release). When I use it as a sniffer (using wireshark) after enabling monitor mode using airmon-ng, I am only able to get Beacon and Probe response frames (which are the management packets). I am not able to get the data packets in wireshark. I tried sniffing packets from an tcp traffic run between an Netgear AP and a client in 5G network with open-none security. Is this an expected problem with this card? I tried reinstalling the driver and all, but no change. The kernel I use is 4.4.102-0404102-generic. Can someone really help me out?
