A network of networks which consists of two or more physical networks connected by routers. Unlike a WAN and internetwork may reside in only a single location. Because it contains too many computers or spans too much distance an internetwork cannot fit within the scope of a single LAN.

The term "Internet" is an abbreviation of the term "Internetwork." An Internetwork is a network of networks. Just like Interstate highways connect states together, the "Internetwork" or "Internet" connects networks together.

Internetwork is a generic term for any 2 networks being connected together. The 'Internet" is a term for the world wide internetwork as a whole. Example: I have 2 networks at home that are connected as an internetwork, but I don't have all the "Internet" at home, but I do connect to it.

An intranet is is a set of networks that are under the control of a single administrative entity. An internetwork is the connection of multiple computer networks via a common routing technology using routers - "THE Internet" is the most obvious example of an internetwork, but you can have a campus or corporate internetwork/internet that is isolated from or connected to THE Internet.
