Well, you've been lucky to have the promiscuous mode up and running then.
As far as I know, that mode is not supported by all cards, and those that
do support it, have not announced said support in their specifications. So
it seems a matter of test&fail to discover which cards do support it, and
which do not.

Could you share what wireless card model are you using, that supports
promiscuous mode?

Good luck with that protocol implementation :)
