What are the levels of firewall rules for the DPC3941T cable modem.

My DPC3941T firewall is currently set to Low (minimum security.)

 

What does that mean|? What are the rules for the different levels of security?

It isn't much, but https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/advanced-xfinity-wireless-gateway-features is the only article I know of on gateway firewall levels.

Low is OK for most users. You can set it to Medium if you never use torrenting apps, but I strongly advise against High unless you're running a really tight ship, and definitely not Custom unless you really know what you're doing.
