How do I Get My Epson Printer Online?

I have a Windows 7 operating system and Epson NX510 wireless printer. When I restart my system, my printer does not come back online. To make my printer again online, I have to remove the printer and then delete printer port. After this, I have to again add my printer as a local printer via EpsonNet Printer Port. After completing these steps, my printer works fine but when I restart my PC, again my printer goes offline. Any ideas to make Epson printer online?
