Hello asterger, 

 

Welcome to the community! 

 

The GS108v4 is only an unmanaged pass-through switch. It mostly functions on Layer 2 (Data Link Layer) by forwarding ethernet frames, it does not really care if the traffic is IPv4 or IPv6. So technically, the answer to your question is yes. 

 

Thanks,
