Can you provide more details?

  1. Where are you trying to take the WiFi capture? Are you trying to take the WiFi capture from the same laptop providing the hotspot?

  2. When your laptop is acting as the hotspot, are you able to browse the Internet on the mobile phone connected to the hotspot WiFi? It is important to disable your mobile's cellular radio to ensure that you are browsing via WiFi and not via the cellular connection.
