In Deep Trouble : Cannot catch Probe Response or Auth Packets

I have tried out virtually everything and even tried to solve the problem
with the greatest of network specialists on this problem (over
stackoverflow), but there seems to be no reason why I haven't been able to
decrypt my captured packets. I have been trying to capture and crack my own
wireless network for over 2 years now using 2 different laptops with latest
wireshark and I haven't been able to do it! I followed each and every step,
I tried out multiple things but nothing works.I tried:

   - Airmon-ng to place the wifi chipset on monitoring mode
   - Trying to capture EAPOL handshakes (never captured past Probe Request)
   - Using an external Wireless N Nano D-link device to capture.
   - Protocol IEEE decrypt check in properties.

Nothing works. I have the latest version of wireshark. My default wifi
chipset info is:
        *   *-network*
*                description: Wireless interface*
*                product: RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter*
*                vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.*
*                physical id: 0*
*                bus info: pci () 0000:07:00.0*
*                logical name: wlan0*
*                version: 01*
*                serial: ec:55:f9:c3:b2:e0*
*                width: 64 bits*
*                clock: 33MHz*
*                capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list
ethernet physical wireless*
*                configuration: broadcast=yes driver=rtl8192ce
driverversion=3.5.0-37-generic firmware=N/A ip= latency=0 link=yes
multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11bgn*
*                resources: irq:17 ioport:5000(size=256)

This chipset is using *rtl8192ce* driver on Ubuntu 12.04. My home wireless
encryption is WPA2-PSK [AES] . I wouldn't have bothered you guys if I
could've solved it with a google search, but I cannot find an answer
anywhere on the whole internet. It'll be really very awesome if you guys
can help me out with this capture and decryption.

Here are the packets captured http://www.fileswap.com/dl/k050mQgULg/
