I have tried to reset the router to factory default by holding the small black button on the back. I've tried rebooting the router many times. I have also tried many firmware releases:

RT-AC86U_386.5_alpha2-g4fa87261ad
RT-AX86U_386.4_0 2
RT-AX86U_386.4_0
RT-AX86U_386.3_2

All have failed to successfully install. Currently my firmware is Asus 3.0.0.4.386_45956

I don't know how to install the Asus Merlin firmware on my router. Also, how do you "Upload it, do a factory default reset, then manually reconfigure it?" . . .

They will fail if you use the wrong firmware.

You CANNOT flash firmware for other models.

You definitely should not be attempting to run alpha software if you are not sure how to do a basic firmware flash.
