Get no passwords with ettercap

I can not manage to get any passwords on my network with Ettercap.
I have followed several tutorials but I still seem to have no luck in getting them.
I have BT5/KDE/32bit installed and using an alfa network adapter (RTL8187).
First I configured etter.conf script to look as below:

ec_uid = 0 # root is the default
ec_gid = 0 # root is the default

# the command used by the remote_browser plugin
remote_browser = "firefox-remote=openurl(http://%host%url)"

# if you use iptables:
redir_command_on = "iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i %iface -p tcp --dport %port -j REDIRECT --to-port %rport"
redir_command_off = "iptables -t nat -D PREROUTING -i %iface -p tcp --dport %port -j REDIRECT --to-port %rport"

I open a terminal and enter the command:

sudo echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

..then I start ettercap

ettercap -Tq -i wlan1 -M arp:remote //

I have even tried

ettercap -G
network/ wlan1
sniff hosts
add host
Mitm arp connections

Can somebody please explain what I am not doing right?

Aside from asking a question that's clearly against LQ rules, about wanting to sniff passwords off a network?? Don't know....

Any member providing assistance with this would be in violation of the LQ Rules.

new-be, LQ isn't the place to get this type of help.
