Hi there,
To fix this issue you can change the Url, which are generated by the captcha to an Url which is suitable for your route.
Since version 2.2, you can write this code:
//default implementation
private string RefreshUrlFactory(UrlHelper urlHelper, KeyValuePair<string, ICaptchaValue> keyValuePair)
    return urlHelper.Action("Refresh", "DefaultCaptcha");

//default implementation
private string ImageUrlFactory(DefaultCaptchaManager captchaManager, UrlHelper urlHelper, KeyValuePair<string, ICaptchaValue> keyValuePair)
    return urlHelper.Action("Generate", "DefaultCaptcha",
                            new RouteValueDictionary {{captchaManager.TokenParameterName, keyValuePair.Key}});

/// <summary>
/// Starts the application.
/// </summary>
public void Application_Start()
    var captchaManager = (DefaultCaptchaManager)CaptchaUtils.CaptchaManager;
    captchaManager.ImageUrlFactory = (helper, pair) => ImageUrlFactory(captchaManager, helper, pair);
    captchaManager.RefreshUrlFactory = RefreshUrlFactory;
