Too many Wi-Fi users?

In my neighborhood, I see seven wireless access points with strong signals. That's only the access points, I have no idea how many users. In such a situation, one would expect collisions and intermittent lost connections. That's what I see. Any way to confirm that the lost connections are in fact due to crowded airwaves?
