Is there a simple way of connecting two devices in different physical locations to make them think they are directly connected via Ethernet? Apologies if this is a blatant newbie question.
 
The only answer you will likely understand is a simple no it can't be done.

If you really want to know you can look up what the following means. There is a method that is not commonly used called L2tpv3 that allows a layer 2 network to span a layer 3 network. You will not find this ability on common consumer routers. It takes a lot of cpu power to run.

Cheers! Reckon I’ve got my head round that! Two Cisco 2811’s ordered! Thanks
