SKYPE DEVICE

I'd like to use skype for all my business' long distance.  My ISP seems to deteriorate the quality of any voip system.  Skype works but as soon as many users start using the internet, it severely affects the quality of the call.   All of the sytems that I see seem to use a pc to make the call, or at least some variation of that.

I would like to have an independent device that would connect to the lan BEFORE my SBS server and subsequent computers.  The idea is that if it is before it can also prioritize skype.  A last requirement is that it should allow passthough for all ports so that it does not limit any pre-installed needs on the lan.

Your best bet for this is something that will prioritize voice. It's not just a question of physically cabling the device in front of or behind some device, your voice needs to have priority across your network.

There are devices like http://us.accessories.skype.com/store/skype/DisplayProductDetailsPage/productID.66161800 this one which will let you make calls on a handset device rather than your computer, but you should still have some form of QoS tagging on your network. It's not necessarily your ISP degrading call quality, it's just the amount off bandwidth and the priority that your calls have on that network.
