XP connection to WINDOWS 7 printer

I can connect the Xp laptop to the Windows 7 printer successfully using a 6 stage procedure via network places. BUT when the XP laptop is switched off, the printer connection is LOST so on next laptop startup the 6 stage procedure has to be repeated.!
I would really appreciate some help in how the connection can be made permanent.
