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.

maybe pooling the connections/socket.
