404 not found

Why am I getting this message when trying to view Youtube?

I have bgeen having trouble with my router. I found an unsecured router listed and borrowed the signal for a few days until I got my router fixed/reinstalled. When trying to access videos on Youtube, I would sometimes get the message, " due to unusual traffic/number of requests" from your network, please type the letters you see in the box.

I would do as directed and get the videos. Now when I try to access Youtube, I get "404 not found".

What gives? Did I pick the wrong unsecured router to borrow the signal?

This can happen even if you do not "borrow" someone's open signal. Firewall, proxy, hosts table, messed up router set up to begin with. I am going to guess that they may have set it up as a "honey-pot", and wanted to see who they could collect info on.
