Just curious if your AP was originally an IOS AP? The code you used is an LWAPP image and requires a Wireless LAN COntroller. The "rck" in the file name means recovery code for LWAPP. If you need to have an IOS AP, then follow this doc to convert LWAPP back to Autonomous,

I would have to agree with fella5. If you upgraded the IOS manually (and previously were able to get to the GUI of the Access Point), then you must have been using the AP as an autonomous access point. The "rck" as fella5 pointed out indicates that this is an LWAPP image which does little more than get the AP ready to join a Wireless LAN Controller (from there it gets the latest code version). I too suggest that you download a different IOS version for this AP, specifically one without the "rck".
