  1. Open capture dialog
  2. Choose Wifi Interface
  3. Then scroll to the right side until the column "Monitor Mode" appears double click the value in your interface row and choose enabled.
  4. Then click on the start button.

    And do not forget setting the Link Layer to Per Packet Info

There are no scroll bars so I did not see a monitor mode as an option. Thanks.
