I believe you are working under the assumption that the $.ajax() call will redirect the current page to the "Default2.aspx" page. If this assumption is correct, this is where the main part of your problem is. The ajax call will not perform the redirect for you, it merely calls a service and posts data to it.

Ideally, when using web forms, you will want to create an actual Web Service (.asmx) file to post to using the ajax call. Then you can return a JSON result to be processed by the page on the callback.
