Problem accessing secure sites on home network only

Specs: Windows 7

I have been experiencing a frustrating problem with my home computer over the last few months...

I can not access Windows Live Messenger, it will not connect. I can visit but not delete or send any e-mails. It says Hotmail is not responding.
I can also not access Windows Update. When I search for updates it comes back with error 80072EE2.
I also have problems accessing secure websites where I need to pay for something, e-Bay, paypal, make payments off Credit Cards etc.

However I can access all websites on my iPhone over the same Wi-Fi. I took the same laptop to 2 other addresses and it works fine at both and able to access all webpages etc!

I am running Windows 7 and have tried IE, Safari and Firefox, all with same problems.
I am with o2 home broadband and have been with them for years with no problems. I have replaced the router, and have another new router on the way, but am expecting the same problems!

I have tried turning off the firewall, still no luck. I think it must be a setting on the home network connection on the laptop...

I am considering leaving o2 and trying another provider but that will cost me more money so am hoping someone may have an answer....
