IEEE 802.11 Frame & Wireshark


Hi there,
Could please some one clarify why when I capture traffic using wireshark it displays the Ethernet Frame and not the IEEE 802.11 Frame?

There are many differences between the encapsulation and I don't know why I see on my laptop the Ethernet II frame structure and not the IEEE 802.11 structure...

How can I see the WLAN frame in Wireshark?

I think I miss something here.

Many thanks.
