Internet then Router goes off when COD comes on. Is it DDOSing

Something weird has been happening since my son bought COD! When he goes online the internet and wifi buttons on the router flash then go off, then all my devices (laptop, phone, printer) lose connection, then the wifi button turns red and then all the buttons go off. I have to swtich it off at the mains and then back on. This happens several times a day. I have been in touch with both Plusnet and Sony and both said the fault lies with the other party. I am very ignorant when it comes to technology, I know very little about the internet and routers and know absolutely nothing about PS. Someone has now suggested we could be a victim of DDOSing. I have no idea what that is? How do we fix it if it is? Or if it isn't that, do you know what it could be. SO far it only seems to happen with COD.
