Just started using OSX and I need to capture some JSON response/requests. I'm using WIFI. I start wireshark , select the WIFI adapter to capture, but any traffic I get is all too low down the stack - e.g. TCP. I don't get any http/json stuff I was to capture higher stack protocols like HTTP & JSON.

Any ideas?

What are the TCP port numbers for that traffic? Perhaps non-standard ports are being used and Wireshark isn't recognizing them as HTTP.
