Also, if:

	the *only* frames you care about are data frames - you don't need to see management or control frames;

	you don't care whether you see the 802.11 header - it's fine if the packets have a fake Ethernet header;

	you only need to see frames going to or from your machine - you do *not* need to see any frames sent from some other machine to some other machine;

you might be able to do it on Windows if you turn promiscuous mode *off*.  For WinDump, dumpcap, or TShark (or Wireshark if you start the capture from the command line), that means passing the "-p" flag to the program.  For Wireshark, that means un-checking the "Promiscuous mode" check box.
