Viewing statistics such as the collision rate is not supported by Windows itself. You will require third-party software that will monitor your network connection and provide you with this information.
If you happen to be running a managed switch, you might be able to obtain this information from it; otherwise, any good packet sniffer will give you greater detail on packet statistics of your network.
In closing, if you only require the collision rate, then I'd suggest you perform a quick search on Google where you'll find many great utilities that will give you the information you need.
