Well, if you don't know who owns the router you doubtless do not have permission to use it?

That leaves you with three problems:

1. Is it a trap?
2. As it is unsecured what malware is lurking on it? It would be a reasonable assumption that the rest of the system is unsecure as well?
3. Are you already "owned"
