What does the error code 8002ab06 mean?

I just now started receiving this message and I've done nothing wrong. It's been going on for a couple of weeks now and ice never had the problem before. Haven't violated any rules considering I was offline for nine months until two weeks ago so I'm sure what's going on but it really ticking me off. I can't even add certain people. 8002AB06

What is an ssid mean

SSID Stands for "Service Set Identifier." An SSID is a unique ID that consists of 32 characters and is used for naming wireless networks. When multiple wireless networks overlap in a certain location, SSIDs make sure that data gets sent to the correct destination.
The SSID is different than the name that is assigned to a wireless router. For example, the administrator of a wireless network may set the name of the router, or base station, to "Office." This will be the name that users see when browsing available wireless networks, but the SSID is a different 32 character string that ensures the network name is different from other nearby networks.
Each packet sent over a wireless network includes the SSID, which ensures that the data being sent over the air arrives at the correct location. Without service set identifiers, sending and receiving data in a location with multiple wireless networks would be chaotic and unpredictable to say the least.

Have netflix on playstation evrytime i try to use it it says playstion under maintence

The Playstation Network is currently under maintenance due to a large scale security breach a few weeks ago. The official blog for Playstation US says the network may be up again in as little as a few days, but I would honestly expect it to be a little longer. Some states are already up and running, so depending upon where you live, you might be able to access it as of now.

My friends list has disappeared on all games, I've tried changing the comment but no luck. Can I get my friends list back without losing any data?


Alot of times if the friends list is disappearing this means that you are losing your network connection causing you to disconnect from the PSN. Once you are disconnected from the PSN your friends list will go away.

Also let me know if you are connected via a wired or wireless connection on your network.

My friends XBOX will connect to netflix on start up, however most if not all the movies are blank. (there gray with swirls) I have the same XBOX we both bought Elites a week ago and mine works fine, I know...

This Might work but no promises What the problem most likely is, is the fact that if you stay signed onto netflix when you turn off then it might think you want it back. another solution is to go into System Settings then System and make the disc auto-start so netflix wont appear thats all i have to say

Starting up Problems

I found it 2 min. ago. Ok here: while your ps3 is on hold the power button on the ps3 for you will hear one beep, keep holding it then when you hear the second beep take your finger off. Your ps3 should turn off. Now push the power button while holding your finger on it again, you will hear two single beeps, then a double beep, let your finger ago and a screen should appear with six options. Chose something like reset(or restore) file data or something like that and click yes, this wont do anything to your game/music/movie/etc. files but now your ps3 shall work.

My Friends list won't come up when I log on why?

If your friends list doesn't come up, it should mean that you're not connected to the PlayStation Network. Right now the Network is experiencing some problems, and I'm having a lot of trouble signing in as well. If you go under the Network column in your XMB and select "Sign In" it should try again to connect. Once you're connected, your friends list will appear.
