Last week I was playing with laptops, open core and Monterey, BigSur, Catalina you can check at this post -> T460p installed open core
Most difficult was wifi (chris1111) driver BUT finally I found 'simprecicchiani' EFI folder on Guthub for T460 y works fine, network, sound, everything ...

I decided to buy a new big SSD hard disk for definite laptop for T460p and install all again. So I started again with last usb stick 'simprecicchiani' EFI tested with old hd AND started again installing Monterey ...... suddenly original internal WIFI start WORKING (without ask SSID or password) you can see attached screen shots

Why wifi is working? with which driver ? AND where was wifi info info stored !?!? It only can be on old stick usb EFI partition. But its very strange isn't ?

you can compare the files used in your EFI and the other EFI to easily work it out

I can use this for the drivers, BUT where is stored wifi SSID and wifi password ?!??!
I have tested same usb stick over other T460 and wifi works, but password is nor remembered. It must be in other site ... NVRAM perhaps ?!?
