Engine turns over, but will not start. There is no spark at the spark plugs. I have checked all under hood fuses and all interior drivers side fuses as well, all have continuity. What should I check next?

CHECKING IGNITION COILS 1.
Measurement of the primary coil
Measure the resistance between connector terminals 3 and 1
(the coils at the No. 1 and No. 4 cylinder sides) of the ignition coil, and
between terminals 3 and 2 (the coils at the No. 2 and No. 3 cylinder
Measurement of the secondary coil
Measure the resistance between the high-voltage terminal
for the No. 1 and No. 4 cylinders, and between the high-voltage terminals for
the No. 2 and No. 3 cylinders.Be sure, when measuring the resistance of the secondary
coil, to disconnect the connector of the ignition coil.
CHECKING SPARK PLUG CABLES
1.Check the cap and outer shell for
cracks.2.Measure the resistanceSpark plug cable (SOHC) Resistance should not be higher than 10,000Ω per foot of
cable. If resistance is higher, replace the cable.

I can't tell what you've done? Where is the fuse located, under the hood--interior fuse box? What is the fuse amp rating and what does it control?
If it cranks good but won't start, make sure the battery has a full charge, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the spark plugs, if spark everywhere, check fuel injector pulse.
What about your security system?
have you checked for spark with vehicle off take a plug out leave it in plug wire but remove it from engine have another person turn key you should see spark from plug on valve cover hold plug close to valve cover dont hold plug hold wire part of it if you dont have spark replace coil pack or distribrator did you bleed fuel line to get air out also before you do this try replaceing fuel pump relay fuse its under hood in the fuse box it might be blown but since you said its getting fuel to rail thats not it but since you said starting fluid starts it its got to do with the fuel because its not fire because it started up so its in the fuel part replace fuel pump relay its easy to do its under hood its marked on the inside cover which one it is did yous bleed the fuel lines if not its also easy on your fuel rail underhood have another turn key but not start truck as they turn key you open bleeder screw then close screw have them turn key off have them do this a few times until you have a steady stream of fuel good luck if this helps give me a good rating if you need any more info just write me back
There are 2 diodes in the fuse box under the hood, there is a spare diode in the interior fuse box. Take that diode and try to swap it with one of the 2 under the hood. Guaranteed one of the diodes under the hood is blown. Do not listen to the other guys advice, he is an idiot!
recheck spark by putting a plug into one of the plug wires and place on valve cover, crank engine and see saprk in that plug. check fuel pressure during cranking to verify fuel supply. If you have no fuel pressure check fuses and fuel pump relay, in fuse box and power distribution box under the hood. If all are good check for power at the fuel pump connector with the key in start position, in run position the power will only be there for about 5 seconds, you are correct with fuel and spark it should run, let me know what you find
Another person had a similar issue with their 2003 Hyundai 1.6L engine. Their fix after looking at many things was that their ECM relay had gone bad. The relay is located in a box under the hood. The box has fuses and relays ... usually there is a legion or map of what is where on the underside of the box cap/lid. The relay is about the size of a one inch cube.
Ignition systems can vary in configuration but operate on the same principal.
Ignition systems can consist of a coil, pick up coil, crank angle sensor, cam
angle sensor, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, ignition rotor and
a distributor and any variations of these components. See a basic Ignition System Testing Video http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_video/test_engine_ignition_system.htm
