Bulgin,
i kinda have the same problem with you. i want to gather data only for my bssid not having all teh possible netwokrs in the area dumping the data to my file.
i still cant see how to do this, how to filter the data for your network and have only that network data in your pcapdump file
any idea?
you could send an email to me if needed
