It can no to capture management frames from the access point.

I am running MR33 with 27.6 firmware version.
I have tried packet capturing wireless frames and found a problem.
 - On Windows 10, I cannot capture management frames sent from the access point.
 - On iPhone, I can capture the management frames sent by the access point.
 
This is a symptom that has been confirmed for a long time (about 2017).
Does anyone have an answer for this issue?

Re: It can no to capture management frames from the access point.

Your Windows machine must have an adapter that supports this in Windows.... and runs in promiscuous mode.
