what can I do?

Use a different OS (even in a virtual machine), use a different sniffer, buy an Airpcap adapter (please google it) or extend/modify WinPcap to support monitor mode.

As it does not use WinPcap.

Btw: Please don't change your comments totally, otherwise it's hard to follow the discussion. My first comment does not make any sense after your comment rewrite.
