google unusual traffic

Hello
Recently i have been getting a lot of "we have detected unusual traffic errors" when trying to search on google, it then gives me a capcha that i have to solve before i can continue.
Should i be worried by this?
for info we are a total Mac household there are no pc's at all
can this be a corrupted router?
Thanks
Mark

Re: google unusual traffic

That's really odd.
Mind giving this a try please?
    Launch Network Utility. ...
    Click Traceroute.
    Enter the domain name for which you want to perform a traceroute: ...
    Click Trace.
    Select the results, and then right-click and select Copy or press COMMAND+C to copy the text.
    Paste the text into a text editor (TextEdit, etc.) and save the file.

Re: google unusual traffic

Then of course either attach that file to your response here in this forum or equally paste the output in the response.
