I use Wireshark in Kali Linux, I've been having some problems viewing traffic of other computers inside of my own WPA encrypted network. I've added the WPA password, collected the EAPOL 4-Way handshake, as well as having the card in promiscuous mode. I can view DNS/ARP, SSDP (I'm unsure as to what this is), EAPoL, and HTTP NOTIFY (Not POST or GET). If I switch to monitor mode via either the settings or with an airmon-ng command, I can only see beacon packets from surrounding networks (lots of them). I have tried setting http.request.method == GET and have tried http.request.method == POST after doing a lot of internet usage on another laptop as well as the one with Wireshark running, with no packets of these types found. Because I still find packets with text (Not just encrypted jargon), I'm not sure if it's decrypting, or what could be happening under the hood. Are there any parameters I didn't explain in this question? Am I doing something wrong? Thank you for any help!
