sh dot11 associations client command on 1811w

A signal strength of up to -65 dBm is very, very good.  Up to -75 is good.  Anything else is useless.

Yes.  They are very, very good signal strength from the clients to the WAP.

Wireless is a two-way street.  You also have to verify what the signal strength is from each client to the WAP.
