Windows 7: Networking from Printer attached to Win XP PC to Win 7

windows 7

I set up my windows 7 laptop to print wirelessly off my printer that is connected to a desktop windows xp computer. It worked flawlessly as per above instructions. My problem is that when I reboot or shut down my laptop the printer then shows offline and I have to reinstall it to get it to work. Any suggestions?
