Fedora 3 Wireless Promiscuous (Monitor) Mode

I have configured a Orinoco Gold wireless card on Fedora 3, to watch
all traffic on access points. The result of the iwpriv command shows
monitor mode as

monitor (8BE8) : set 2 int & get 0

from the docs I have read, if the monitor mode shows in the list from
the iwpriv command then the card is in Promiscuous (monitor) mode.

The issue I am having is that when using Kismet or Ethereal all I get
is ARPs and IEEE 8-2. Probe Requests, I never see any actual traffic.
What can I do to actually capture any and all traffic that is seen by
the wireless card?

Thank you!
