Is it possible to find causes of my home internet dying from messeges in Wireshark capture?

To summarize, recently my home Wi-Fi has been experiencing random internet crashes multiole times daily, and I've been wondering what the cause is since this has never happened before.

I was monitoring my Network and seconds before my Wi-Fi crashed once again, I got a flood of colored red, black, and beige messeges and I'm wondering if its an app doing it that I might have installed, a family members device, malware, etc.

In one sentence: I want to know if I can figure out the cause of recent and frequent Wi-Fi crashes through Wireshark logs.

Just to clarify, I know just a pinch about Networking, so please excuse any wrong names or words, thank you.

What do you mean by 'Wi-Fi crash'? What crashes? The home router? The Wi-Fi link to your computer system? What computer system is that? What kind of Wi-Fi as you talking about?

From what I guess from your question is that your Wi-Fi link goes down hence the protocols running over this link start to show retries, until they give up and your applications start to indicate the connections are gone. So this problem manifests itself in the RF domain, not the networking domain, hence Wireshark can show you little more than the consequences of these problems, i.e., network protocols giving up.
