It is not all that simple, and Wireshark may not be the right tool for your goal.

The network connection status, which the web management page of your router or the icon in your operating system's system tray indicate, is a result of active periodic testing of accessibility of some reference host(s) in the internet. While you can capture packets sent and received by the PC on which you run Wireshark, you cannot directly see packets which your router exchanges with the network without your PC's participation (unless your PC is between the router and the network, which I doubt is the case).

So to obtain a better answer, please be more specific about which network connection status you want to see (i.e. the router's one or your PC's one), and what is your network topology (how the PC, the router and the link to the ISP/internet are arranged).
