Well, I'll take a quick stab at something:
Ontologies are conceptualizations (cf Tom Gruber's defn). They are
mental constructs that identify the terminology and relationships in
a particular domain.
Semantic networks are a technology. They can be used to implement an
ontology, as well as various other technologies such as first order
logic, description logic, frames, F-Logic, knowledge maps, etc.
