oops ... well saw this after I already tried the wireless option.
I basically had the cwm recovery program going in one command window and in another cmd window did the adb connect 192.168.x.xxx:5555 command while the cwm bat was running (at the place it was hanging before) and it seemed to proceed okay then. It got to "finished" and my phone restarted.
After it got back to home screen i pulled batt and did vol down and power and got into CWM-based recovery v188.8.131.52. Going to start with backup/ recovery test now.
Thanks again for all the help. Hopefully if other people are having these driver issues this works for them too I guess.
