I'm no expert with PostgreSQL ODBC in particular, but I have never used any 
other ODBC driver that could maintain an ODBC connection when the physical 
connection was closed.  If you need something like that, I think you will 
need to open your own ADO connections in code and close them after each 
interaction so they can be reopened cleanly again later.  Whether Access is 
helpful as a front-end in this configuration is a good question.

until you disconnect the internet and reconnect it. After reconnection to 
the internet no ODBC connections work ("ODBC Call Failed").  If we exit 
Access and then try it again it works.
