One of the benefits of using DC++ is the ability to switch the hub list that is downloaded. DC++ has the most secure and reliable hublists preconfigured by default. DC++ will only use one hub list at a time, but you can specify several in case one list goes down.

To use another hub list, open up File -> Settings -> Downloads. Click on Configure Public Hub Lists.  Paste in another hub list and click Add.  DC++ will try each hub list listed, starting with the one at the top.

Here is a list of popular hub lists in use today:

Public XML Hublists


Country Specific Hub lists
URL Notes
http://www.musu.lv/hublist.xml Latvian hubs
http://www.hublista.hu/hublist.xml.bz2 Hungarian hubs

If none of these work in DC++, try pasting a link into your browser.If a file does download, then you have some sort of firewall blocking DC++ specifically.  If nothing downloads, then a firewall is blocking all your internet traffic to that site or the list is down.
