The difference between the three are:

Intranet is a collection of private computer networks on an organization. Generally, it uses such technologies as their tool to establish communication between people or groups to refine data sharing. It utilizes Ethernet, Wireless Networks, Browsers, TCP/IP and Servers. A typical intranet has an internet connection but it is more secured so that it cannot be accessed by anyone.

Ethernet is also called as the LAN technology designated in a standard IEEE 802.3. It uses a coaxial cable or twisted pair of wires. Ethernet was developed by Xerox Corporation with the help of DEC and Intel.

Internet on the other hand is the interconnected computer networks that uses TCP/IP. It carries an extended range of services such as hypertext documents on the World Wide Web and the infrastructure for emails.
