Linux gateway/router in virtualbox

Hello here,
I would like to setup a linux gateway for my homenetwork(LAN),i would like all traffic to go through the linuxbox,so i can hopefully do iptables,and log all traffic too. I have a couple of tablets,a desktop and a laptop in my home LAN.
I presently run windows 7 and before i migrate to linux fully,i am trying to simulate my network in virtualbox first.
I have installed Debian linux,windows7and Xp as guest OS's in virtualbox,the question at the moment is for traffic from xp and and windows 7 to go through the debian linux guest, what type of network config do i choose in virtualbox(ie either NAT,NAT NETWORK,BRIDGED or INTERNAL).
Thank anybody to helpout here.
