Can the Xi6 work with an ethernet switch?

My main X1 modem is in my main house. The tech told me to use ethernet to put the Xi6 in the guest apartment separate from the house. I was wondering if the Xi6 will work if I take a cable from the modem to a switch, then from the switch to the box (that way I can have wifi there as well)

A switch should have no effect, assuming the Xi6 has an Ethernet port?

That's exactly my setup (XB6 gateway to Netgear G508 gigabit switch to Xi6 box) and the Xi6 works perfectly.
