If you check the list of options possible to run here:
http://nsmwiki.org/Snort#Usage

You will se the "-w" (lowercase) is primarily to

-w         Dump 802.11 management and control frames

It could be possible that using Uppercase lettering prevents your command from running.

Ahh, I forgot to ask, are you using Windows or Linux to run snort?

After some digging it seems the -w option only works in the Windows version.

Then you should type

ifconfig -a

to show all your available interfaces.

Then you run snort with

snort -i <interface>

or if you only have one interface available,
make snort listen on the first available interface:

snort -v

Hope this helps.
