The server requires a PHPSESSID cookie be set before login. The FAQ has  an 
example that saves a session cookie after login but not before login. So in a 
situation like yours you'd typically have an additional step. You'd have to 
access the page with the login form first to get a valid session cookie before 
attempting to post.

However it happens the way they have their server setup you can pass in a blank 
PHPSESSID when you POST and it should assign you a valid one and at the same 
time allow your login. That's my theory, anyway. If I pass this
I get a valid session in the reply and no cookie error message.
printf "members.sonic.net\tFALSE\t/\tTRUE\t0\tPHPSESSID\t" > sonic.txt

I suggest that you not disable certificate checking. Check this from yesterday 
for help

So first either set a blank session cookie (described above) or better just get 
wget --save-cookies=sonic.txt --keep-session-cookies https://members.sonic.net/

Then login:
wget --load-cookies=sonic.txt --save-cookies=sonic.txt --keep-session-cookies 
--post-data="user=a&pw=b" https://members.sonic.net/
