Hello, using a Windows computer with Wireshark 1.6.7 and a AirPcap Nx. I am filtering by wlan.addr. I cannot see things like RTS/CTS or PS-Poll packets in my trace. Do I have to change a setting somewhere to let me see those type of packets?

For future reference to someone else who might experience the same or similar problem as you did, which version of Wireshark did you upgrade to?

I was on 1.8.1 and could not see them, after upgrading to 1.8.3 I was then able to see them. 64 Bit
