alright, I've been googling this all day, and I haven't found a solution. I've tried what a lot of other threads/sites recommended but I can't get wireshark to properly capture.

I'm running BT in a VMWare machine inside of windows 7. I can get linux to recognize the adapter and I was able to use airmon-ng to get the adapter running in monitor mode. Wireshark detects the adapter as eth0 and not wlan0 or mon0, which might be wrong? i'm a newb, so i don't know. anyway, i can see my traffic fine, but i can't see anyone else's traffic, even though wireshark is capturing in promiscuous mode and the adapter is running in monitor mode.

perhaps it's because BT is in a VM?
