    Tdol, do you mean all 3 ?
    Can "Nethertheless", "Nonetheless" and "Either" be used in the same way ?

    "Either" means "Nethertheless" or "Nonetheless". In other words, choose one or the other. They are equally valid. If your choice is based on which is correct to use then "Either" is definitely the right choice.
