You need to ellaborate on your problem a little more.

What type of LAN is this? (residential, college, corporate)

What model router are you connecting to?

Do you connect to the router through a switch/hub?

Is it a wireless connection?

What ethernet card or wireless card are you using?

Is it only after using Outlook that the internet connection drops?

You say you can browse the LAN but not the WAN? is this always the case?

Have you set up the DNS server your PC uses or is it automatically assigned?

Please try to answer these questions and add anything else you think might help.
