Use wireshark (previously known as ethereal) instead. It is a graphical
sniffer. Once started as root, press Ctrl+k to start the sniffing dialog
and choose your wireless interface. Check the "Uptate list of packets in
real time" option, under "Display Options", and press start.
Once you have captured the traffic, you can right click on any of the TCP
packets and select "Follow TCP Stream" to see the conversation in ASCII
in a new window. Close it window and press the "clear" button in the main
window to see the whole capture again.
