Thank guys I took a look at the note and ordered a few different units to test.
My preference is really to have 5GHz built into the the Pro or a version of the Pro. Purely from a mechanical point of view, my IoT device exposed the mini-usb port on my case so users can power the device, this would mean I have to also expose the USB-A port with the 5GHz dongle which looks pretty messy and I know users will unplug it or fiddle with it and then complain they have no network connectivity. Alternatively I would need to redesign my case to move the Omega away from the side of my case and use a short mini-usb case mounted port. Either way it's messy.
Thanks everyone for the replies. I have been using the genuine Onion OLED. I found he issue, the connector seems to have an issue. If I jiggle it, it will start working, then stop working. I tested on 3 different OLEDs and I get the same behaviour so it's definitely my 2S+. I have more on order so hopefully I'll be ok once they arrive.
Daniel that is an interesting idea, but I expect it will quite slow given the overhead.
I'm currently building the the LEDE system on the docker image running on my Surface 4, i7, 16GB, Windows 10 Pro 64Bit the build has been running for about 18 hours and still has not completed. The same build on the same machine but running Ubuntu 17 on VMWare Workstation Pro 15, builds in about 2 hours.
