thanks jeff... but i have read it before... man, i read it 3 or 4 times already, but i just cant get it how to run it on windows... in the capture option, there is a button for wireless setting and remote setting, and those buttons are disabled.. what should i do?

I'm not an expert on WLAN capturing, but IIRC the most important question is: what OS are you using? If it's Windows, chances are you're out of luck (unless you buy an AirPcap adapter). See the section about using Monitor mode.
