Where are you putting your sniffer(capture)? What type of sniffing option are you using: arp cache poisoning, tap, port mirroring or what?

Long story short (simplified): In a regular network (switched or Wifi/wlan) you will only see traffic to/from your own system and broadcast/multicast traffic.

Please read the Wiki article about Ethernet Capture Setup (or Wlan Capture Setup). That will explain why you see only your own traffic, unless you prepare the environment for proper network traffic capturing.
