You may have to force the driver to use host-side decryption with
'iwpriv wlan0 host_decrypt 1' for this. By default, encryption and
decryption are done in the wlan card if the station firmware is known to
work correctly (many of them have bugs for some cases). You can also
verify the current configuration with 'iwpriv wlan0 gethost_encrypt'.
