I forgot: if you installed tcpdump, try to see if you catch more
trafic with that tool. You should not be able to see more with
tcpdump than with snort, for both use the libpcap libraries : it is a
way to be sure snort is not implied with your problem...

If you did not install tcpdump... Just do(wnload) it
(www.tcpdump.org) ! It never hurts to know usefull tools :-)
