but when Im sniffing the packets from a third computer ( on my own WLAN ) im getting them in LLC protocol instead of TCP and I cant see the data (I think its encrypted or scrambled ) as shown below:






Any idea whats the problem? or how can I extract the data? I tried ASCII, UNICODE and Hex translation to string nothing worked.
