One, you would have to see what size card the T460S uses. I *think* it's
probably a half-height one (which is also what my X230 uses), so that
would be the one I listed under (2).

But, two, you could run into issues with the bios only whitelisting
certain wifi cards. I know some ThinkPads have such whitelist, but I
don't know about your particularly model. (And I don't think Coreboot is
an option for that model either.)
