Default Wifi puzzle?

The likes of Netstumbler and my connections own monitor show my signal
strength from my access point as quite strong and connected at full
speed - but that is never the entire story.

That just shows how well I am receiving the access point, not how well
the access point is receiving my PC's signal. Often I have a 54Mb
connection, a very strong signal reported at my PC, but next to no
actual data through put. Is there a way to interrogate an access point
to see how good my received signal is?
