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.

No, that switch won't work in your case. It requires an additional wire to the fan in order to control is separately from the light.

But you could use this wireless one instead. It would require installing the receiver module up in the fan housing, in addition to replacing the switch in the wall.
