Xtreme N Now Offers Speeds in Excess of 100 Mbits*!
Bitstorm's BAD BOY Xtreme N now supports the latest Wi-Fi Mode N. That means wireless link speeds in excess of 100 megabits/sec (Mbits)* are now possible! Xtreme N pulls in and locks onto the weakest signals. How do we do this? Just like with our original Xtreme, by putting the highest power Wi-Fi device available right at and connected directly to the antenna, the antenna cable is eliminated. No cable losses. What this means is that all of the available power (up to 36dBm or 4W EIRP) goes out the antenna for maximum range and best possible reception. And the data goes to your computer via a digital (not analog) outdoor grade shielded cable. And since it's digital, you can locate your Wi-Fi device in the best location up to 300 feet (90 meters) away. Masthead installation with its ideal range and clear line-of-sight is now possible. They put your VHF antenna at the highest place for a reason. The same is true with Wi-Fi. No more compromises!
The biggest problem is often the line of sight that's needed for Wi-Fi. Surroundings that have water, wood and metal all conspire to reduce range. Then there's the miniscule power that laptops put out - you can see the hotspot access point but it can't hear your laptop. Unlike laptops and other mobile devices which put out only 35-50mW, this Bad Boy puts out up to 4W (36dBm) of power to get you connected. And keep you connected!
Compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux... any operating system. Rugged, completely weatherproof and continues operating in extreme temperatures. Select Wi-Fi Access Points through your browser so there's no software to install. Multiple mounting options to choose from. And why not complete your system with an Unleashed rebroadcaster that lets you go completely cable free and use the Wi-Fi already built into your computer.
* Refers to the wireless link speed. The actual speed of the internet conenction may be considerably less. While wireless data rates up to 150 Mbits are possible, most hotspots provide a connection to the internet of only a few Mbits.
Note: Xtreme N is backward compatible with original Xtreme and is interchangeable.

Just installed the system on my boat and it is fantastic.Everyone in the marina is wondering how I get the internet signal so strongly.

I have been using a BadBoy Extreme with Unleashed aboard my 45' Steel Yacht this season. The Extreme antenna is about 2/3rds up the Mizzen while the Unleased is by the Nav Station with a clear view of the cockpit. Reception is pretty amazing and can be shared by devices anywhere on the yacht. We have 2 laptops, 2 tablets and 1 iPhone all working happily. Hotspot signal range varies depending on how powerful the cafe site is but I can usually get much further and have a more reliable connection than friends in the anchorage using other gear. This kit is great!
