I am trying to have Kismet listen to my home wireless network and see what it can pick up.

Basically, I wanted to see if one of my neighbors was running Kismet, could they receive anything.

Just as a test, I turned off WPA2 and had it open, with MAC filter.

I purposely logged in to my local web server that had no HTTPs, yet Kismet dump file after running it through Wireshark only shows me making a connection yet no details about what was the HTTP traffic especially user and password.

I'm kinda confused because a few web sites mention that it can pick up passwords, but in every test I did, it never caught my password.
