Are these IPv6 compatible

These are what I use with my network and I need to know if they are compatible with IPv6.
1) TE100-S8 Version v1.2R
2) XAV2001 Powerline AV
3) XAV5001 Powerline AV

Switches and powerline adapters operate at the physical level, they don't care about the IP running over them.

Unless you're asking if the powerline adapters provide management interfaces via IPv6, which is unlikely at this time.

Anything that provides layer 2 (Ethernet) connectivity like the unmanaged switch and the powerline adapters doesn't care whether you run IPv4, IPv6 or any other layer 3 network protocols over it.

Management of the powerline adapters however is likely limited to IPv4.

Chances are those will pass v6 traffic just fine. I've got a similar set that does just fine with v6 and handling dot11q. Management is via v4 though.
