MS Access 2013 on Windows 8.1: error 3043 disk or network error

After upgrading windows 8.0 to 8.1 a Ms Access 2013 application, with the DB file on a network share, gives an "error 3043 disk or network error" a couple times a day.

I have tried  a clean installation of windows 8.1 on the laptop's, updating network card drivers, disabeling power saving and green ethernet etc. But nothing seems to work except going back to windows 8.0.

A different laptop with other hardware also with windows 8.1 has the same problem, a different laptop still with Windows 8.0 is working fine.

Something in windows 8.1 causes Access to lose it's connection to the database, does anyone have an idea what this might be?

Hi.

First try would be to install all windows updates including optional ones, for office 2013 as well.

Open a command prompt (cmd)
Net Statistics Workstation
Note that this gives how long your machine has been on, and network statistics.
Report back here the number of disconnections approximating per hour
If you are networked over wireless, don't expect improvements.
If you are on a wired network, is there an network administrator?  I.E. Are the managed switches being managed?  What make and model of hub, switch or router is the client connected to, and similarly for each device back to the server, where if network teaming is used, how is it configured (similar for trunk links between switches).  If managed, pull port statistics.  If unmanaged, check your system eventlog for messages from your network card, and report back here.

If you are using
Windows Defender, Microsoft’s free antivirus solution in Windows 8, now includes network behavior monitoring to help detect and stop the execution of known and unknown malware. Internet Explorer scans binary extensions (e.g. ActiveX) using the antimalware solution before potentially harmful code is executed.

The Malware resistance may be trottling your network connection.  Test without antivirus/internet protection products then again with a commercial network security product.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hello,

I ran the commands, but there are no lost connections today. It's in dutch, but you can understand.
No Microsoft antivirus, just Nod32 eset.

Retest when there's been errors.  Watch that usage count, as for clients acting as servers it will start dropping connections at 20.

The application provider has managed this problem further so it's up to the programmers now.
