Only able to capture broadcast packets in monitor mode


I'm setting my WLAN interface to monitor mode using "airmon-ng start wlan0" and it reports back that monitor mode has been started. However captures on mon0 only show broadcast or multicast packets.

How reliable is airmons claim that monitor mode is on ?
