XTREME MJ survives Hurricane Irma! Read one customer's experience (September 2017):
"We've owned a Bad Boy (Xtreme) MJ for about 3 years now, and it has been a highly valuable device on board. We've got it installed at the top of the mast, riveted in on the provided L bracket. We are located in St Maarten where we recently took a huge Category 5 direct hit with over 200MPH/360KPH winds. I'm happy to report the Bad Boy, with antenna, is still mounted at the top of the mast. Suffice to say, your product is pretty robust. Thanks again!" - Derek, s/y ARAVILLA

If you can find a better price for a complete system similar to Xtreme, we will better it by 10%!

Product Description

Waterproof Metal Jacket Housing. 100+ Mbits*!

Integral 1-14 mounting adapter as part of the housing!

Bitstorm's BAD BOY Xtreme MJ (Metal Jacket) provides two benefits. While it's fully waterproof (submersible - IP67), its biggest benefit is the metal casing protecting the electronics inside during periods of electrical storm activity. It's a faraday shield blocking both external static and non-static electrical fields.

Xtreme MJ 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 as with our other Xtreme models, 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 connection 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 MJ is backward compatible with original Xtreme and Xtreme N and is interchangeable.

  1. Works great...we'll see if it holds up.

    Posted by CST on 27th Jan 2015

    This is the second time I have ordered a Bitstorm product, but this time I got the MJ (Metal Jacket) version becuase after two years on our last boat the previous one began to deteriorate and the plastic housing was showing signs of concern for me. When we were in the Bahamas in 2012 I pulled in a WiFi signal from SEVEN MILES once! Grant it they were perfect conditions...open water and strong WiFi but still. Obviously, I liked the product and how it performed but given that it's designed to be in the marine environment I did not expect it to fade as quickly as it did. We sold that boat and I liked it enough to put one on our new boat...I was glad to see the MJ version hopefully it holds up better. These components aren't anything real unique as a number of folks sell these under different labels but the software is fairly unique and seemed easy to use etc...I also liked that they put a dial to control the power of the antenna right on the GUI for ease of use. Nice call.

  2. Worth 10X What I Paid

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Jan 2015

    I spent months (literally) trying to figure out exactly what setup I needed to buy to have reliable internet on my boat, and every review I came across about this system was glowing... but I was still slightly skeptical. Often, reviews don't seem to match the quality of a true user experience. I have to say, the setup I got is incredible! The quality of the product is awesome, the customer service is wonderful, and the system works great. I honestly could not be happier.

  3. Telephone support was awesome.

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Nov 2014

    Have not been out to other marinas since that system was installed so cannot give an opinion as to how effective it is. However, it does seem to work well at my home marina. But the gentlemen that helped me through the connection setup was really wonderful. Thanks again.

  4. Excellent product

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Aug 2014

    Excellent

  5. It Works

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Dec 2013

    All you want in a product is that it works as advertised. This does that. Paired with the Unleashed WiFi there is no need to connect a cable to your computer, and more than one can be on the internet at the same time. Unlike other products of this type the user interface even works with Linux. It may be costly, but it works.
