My Squeezebox Duet Receiver is located 5 meters from my wireless access point and the signal strength is 24% !
Could that be the reason that sometimes the music stops playing ?

When I put my laptop in the same range, the signal strength is 100%.

Could the receiver get an external antenna connected maybe ?

Sounds like a problem with the wireless card in the receiver. My receiver is approximately the same distance from my router, housed inside a heavy wooden entertainment center (router sits atop the entertainment center) and my wireless signal strength is 87%. I would have expected in the 90's but I guess that is good enough as I'm not having issues.
