Do i have the wiring for this light/fan switch?

Looking to install a new switch in a bedroom that is for a ceiling fan with a light. The new switch has a switch for the light and 4 mode fan control.

Here is the switch.

I'm wondering if it would even work with the wiring i have. I have 3 lines coming into the box 1 coming from up top and 2 from the bottom, all three lines have a black, white and ground. So a total of six wires, two pairs each.

You can't do it without a new cable from the switch to the fan.
You only have one hot and one neutral to the fan. To control the fan and light separately you need two hots and one neutral.
