It's not only for wireless networking. It's a network monitor, you can capture traffic entering and leaving your PC, or just traffic passing-by as it were, if your network hardware is capable of it.

What do you want to do with it?
Select an interface, the screen will fill with network traffic if everything is working as it should and you chose an active network interface, you need to know what you're looking for to narrow it down with filters.

I don't see why you need Wireshark to do what you describe. You need a wireless router and a wireless adapter, that's all. click here
