How Can I Use Wireshark To Troubleshoot a LAN connectivity issue

I have a network with 5 pc's. Randomly, I log in (remotely) to the network and find that all mapped drives are not connected. PC 1 is my backoffice. PC 2 - 5 are workstations (Workgroup, not domain). PC 2 - 5 are all mapped to PC-1. They are password protected as well. Today PC 2 was connected but PC 1 and PC 5 were disconnected.
How can I use Wireshark to troubleshoot this problem in the future. This happens frequently enough and I want to get my arms around the issue.

Thanks in advance for any assistance provided.
