Query regarding Rx Filter

we are not able to capture management frames like authentication request/ assocation request if Rx Filter on AP interface is set to accept all Unicast/Multicast/broadcast frames/beacon frames/Probe request/

we receive all the packets if we set the rx filter to promiscuous mode. But that doesnt seem to be a nice idea.

can anyone give some pointers for the same?
