Cannot capture TCP frames

AP is 2.4GHz, 20 MHz bandwidth, Channel 1, 802.11n only
Omnipeek adapter is OmniWifi capturing on Channel 1 (2412 MHz)

I can only see Control and Management frames, but no data frames. Am I doing something wrong?

Do you see encrypted data in the protocols view?

Nope. Sorry, I forgot to add that my network is set to Open Authentication.

I would suggest you contact Tech Support. The setting of your network does not necessarily affect what you are capturing. You would need to have access to data in a wireless network between nodes to capture data, IE, multiple APs and or clients.

Support will examine your topology and determine what is happening
