Can't get online for past 7 days

I have been unable to get online. When I could get online I received three error messages. "Network did not assign a network address to the computer," " The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading," and "The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection."  The DHCP is enabled, obtain the IP address automatically is checked, and changing the LAN line did nothing. I think the router is working, but just in case, I bypassed the router and went from modem straight to pc.  No change.
 
I typed command: nslookup [ENTER] > www.google.com.sg and got this response:
 Windows IP configuration:
       Primary Dns Suffix.....:  
       Node type:unkown.  
       IP routing enabled:no    
       WINS proxy enabled.  
Ethernet adapter
Local Area Connection
      Connection-specific
      Dns suffix....
Roller
       DHCP enabled: yes
       Autoconfiguration enabled: yes
       Autoconfig IP address 169.254.163.28
       Subnet mask  255.255.0.0
       Default gateway  169.254.163.28

Then when I ping www.google.com.sq I get

NS lookup
       Default servers are not available
       Default server: Unknown
       Address 127.0.0.1
sq
       Server:unknown
       Address 127.0.0.1
***Unknown can't find www.google.com.sq:
    No response from server
It is as though there was no connection between the PC and the modem.  What can I do?

Based on the information you posted ... this is a DNS resolution issue.
Your DNS server should not be your own machine (127.0.0.1 ... this is the loop back address of your machine).

Check your DHCP configuration and see what it is assigning.

It is possible that your ISP account has misconfigured your settings and is assigning DHCP values incorrectly BUT ... this is most likely an IP configuration issue on your machine.  My guess is that you are over riding the DNS options locally.  I have never seen that value assigned ... a guess ... you selected assign DNS servers and left the fields blank.  Make sure the DNS configuration fields on your machine are set to DHCP.

This problem was solved by updating the driver of the network adapter controller, then renewing the IP address.  Thanks to those who attempted to help me.
