Why do I see only downstream traffic? Aug 12 2009 09:53PM

I am trying to sniff traffic in a wireless network using wireshark.
Without going into promiscuous mode I can see my neighbour downstream
traffic i.e. traffic from AP to the end users. Same case even if I use
promiscuous mode. I dont see any upstream traffic?

Can somebody please explain this? How do I sniff upstream traffic (
from end-user to the AP) ?
