I want to change the Intel wireless LAN card on my T460s to an Atheros card.

Hi,

 

My T460s laptop has an Intel 8260 wireless LAN card. I would like to use an Atheros card (such as AR9580 or AR9590). I read that only some WiFi cards are whitelisted by the BIOS on the laptop. I tried looking at the list for my product T460s at  

 

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/pt/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-laptops/thinkpad-...

 

But I did not find any substitutes for the card. Am I to understand that Is it not possible for me to use an Atheros AR9580 or any other similar Atheros wireless LAN cards on my lenovo T460s ? 

 

A followup question would be if I have t omatch the number of antennas on my laptop (which I think is 2) with the wilresss LAN card I buy ? Can I buy a card that has 3 antenna ports and only connetc 2 of them ? 

 

Thank you
