The first step of he instructions are "buy an AirPcap adapter":


or, alternatively, "install an operating system other than Windows on your machine", such as a Linux distribution or a *BSD operating system.

You can't capture raw 802.11 frames on Windows with WinPcap except with an AirPcap adapter.
