The path for Control Panel can found within this resolved tutorial:
Link To Path Within Control Panel
Found a tutorial which allow you to add icons to the context menu if preferred:
Context Menu - Add Shortcuts with Icons
Managed to find the file path for the Network connections within Control Panel, if you click Network and Internet it will bring you to the Network part of Control Panel:
File Path: C:\Windows\System32\ncpa.cpl
P.S From some of the forums and tutorials I have found, Network Connections is the closest you can get to the Network section of the Control Panel.
Hope this helps,
