If you're capturing on an encrypted (if you want to call a WEP connection encrypted, it's more of an obfuscation nowadays :-)) you might not see anything useful until you decrypt the traffic, provided you have access to the encryption keys. I guess that's also why the filters do not match anything - because stuff is still encrypted.
