Anyone know of a Skype ATA...

That doesn't require a USB connection to a PC?

It seems I can EITHER get a normal SIP ata that can run independently of a PC but not support skype (I have two already, I don't ne3ed another one), OR I can get one that requires a USB connection to a PC.

Oh, or I can get a "SkypePhone" that connects via wi-fi, ethernet, or USB; but I'm specifically looking to connect my internal phone system to skype.

Actiontek, linksys, d-link, zoom, and several others all make Skype ATAs, but as near as I can tell, they all require a USB connection to a running computer.

I'd rather avoid that. If I have to have a running computer, I might as well just set up asterisk on one of my spare linux boxes.
