Setting up AP in Sniffer mode

Looking for information that the sniffer trace just doesn't show me.

I have the AP setup in sniffer mode. I went to the controller that the AP is homed to. I'm capturing the data to wireshark.

I'm debugging the packets as AiroPeek. I can't seem to capture the clients initial connections i.e. dhcp request and handshakes.

Have I missed something ?

I'm not sure what firmware version you've got, but try this:

Configuring Wireless Sniffing

Hope this helps.
