We have a situation (new setup) where clients can associate to either the 871-w or the 1131 w/open authentication and reach Internet. Users can also roam (according to the 1131 console) to the 871-w and continue to work. Users cannot roam back to the 1131 from an association on the 871-w, although the 1131 shows them as associated, so does the 871-w and their traffic goes no where. Are these two devices compatable>?

Topology: 871-w with wireless enabled and 1131 trunked thru the 871-w's switch port.

there is no defined standard for roaming is not so when you are marginal coverage you can find that the client doesn't associate properly.

Are you using well-separated channels?

You may need to reduce power, or configure a proper antenna so that the zone of your interest has a bigger difference is signal
