I still think this would be a lot easier if you'd made up a proper summary. So 
I'll give it a go:
 * all SSL/TLS sites (that you've tried) work over wired LAN
 * some SSL/TLS sites work over wireless, but not all.
 * you don't see some sites sometimes working - its deterministic by which 
host you're trying to connect to.
 * it doesn't seem to matter where you try to connect from (in terms of 
wireless access point)
 * it doesn't seem to matter what client (e.g. which browser) you use.

Any thing else?

The only thing I can think of is that this isn't an SSL problem at all. Does 
your wireless device have an IPv6 address? Does your wired interface have an 
IPv6 address?

Maybe you can try using wget with the --verbose option on a couple of sites 
that do work, and a couple of sites that don't work, and comparing the 
results. Of course, if you want us to help, you might care to post the results 
of each.
