Blank as in the X display is broken or blank as in not updating
with packets matching your interface and filter selection?
If capturing is the problem, try:
tcpdump -s1500 -w filename
  ..do some stuff, then control-C to end the capture, then
ethereal -r filename
to view/analyze the capture.
Ethereal should do the capture too, but you may have to play
with the interface and options. I'm not sure if all wireless
cards will work in promiscuous mode.
